Fire Extinguisher Training

As part of our Fire Marshal Training course, we can provide practical extinguisher training. A UK study performed by the Fire Extinguishing Trades Association and the Independent Fire Engineering and Distributors Association reviewed over 2100 fire incidents and found that in 80% of cases a portable fire extinguisher successfully extinguished the fire. However, using a fire extinguisher to tackle a fire involves a number of key skills.

Our fire simulators will realistically simulate multiple fire settings in a controlled environment. The unit consists of a fuel tray and waste paper bin combination with an ability to control the size of the fire using a regulator attached to the gas cylinder.

As well as fulfilling your role as a responsible employer and complying with the RRO (2005), our Fire Extinguisher course brings key benefits to your workplace, including: a substantial increase in the effectiveness of any fire-fighting that occurs within the workplace, ensuring your staff act in a way that prioritises the safety of themselves and others, creating an atmosphere in which employees are confident in their abilities to assess and fight fires, training employees to act quickly and appropriately, tailored and specific to the types of fire that are likely to occur within your particular environment.
